I am wondering where the Spitfire Axles are prone to failure. I recently
pulled the axles out of my Chevy pickup and discovered that they are not all
that much larger than the ones on my Mk1 Spit. I would thing that if there is
not that much difference in the size, the difference must be in the
quality of the metal if people are having their axles break.
I would love to hear opinions (especially those backed by personal experience)
on the subject!
